Helllllooooo, San Diego! ❤️❤️❤️ #funko #funkofamily #funkofunatics #sdcc #sandiegocomiccon #comiccon #sdcc2018
Original panoramic hand painted background from the 1972 animated motion picture Journey Back to Oz.  This background was sadly cut (not by me!!!) decades ago in order to frame it with some original cels but it survives. The mushroom scene was part of a comedy moment where Toto chases a cat into the dark woods near the wicked witch, Mombi, and they have a classic cartoon scene of running in/out of an old log.  The inset shows this portion of the background on film. #journeybacktooz #wizardofoz #lfrankbaum #books #literature #animation #cartoons #movies #classicmovies #hollywood #lizaminnelli #margarethamilton #ethelmerman #paullynde #art #originalart #animationart #cels #1970s #70s

Original Winnie the Pooh poster, from Bil Bairds NYC marionette theater, during the inaugural 1967 run.  The Pooh marionettes had appeared on the Shirley Temple Storybook TV show in 1960. #marionettes #puppets #puppetry #puppeteers #bilbaird #winniethepooh #books #literature #aamilne #shirleytemple #nyc #theatre #publicity #advertisingposter #posters #piglet #1960s

“Acuba Ne!” An original Stink head appliance, worn by actor Bobby Porter, from the Sid & Marty Krofft 1991-1993 revival of Land of the Lost. Stink was such a favorite character for me, I named my Maine Coon cat after him. The creative team and producers were the famed Chiodo Brothers and the look of this show was AMAZING! ❤️❤️❤️ #krofft #sidandmartykrofft #landofthelost #bobbyporter #classictv #tvshows #saturdaymorningtv #fantasy #scifi #chiodobrothers #stephenchiodo #charleschiodo #eddwardchiodo #1990s #90s #originalprops #art #artists #pakuni #paku @echiodo @sjchiodo

I love the color and design for these 1971 movie promotional bumper sticker and metal lithographed tab badge for the Night of Dark Shadows movie. While it had many of the TV cast, it didn’t have Barnabas, the actors played slightly different characters, and the movie was edited heavily without the director so the movie didn’t do as well as hoped. Film buffs still hope an unedited version or cut segments surface. #darkshadows #nightofdarkshadows #vampires #laraparker #davidselby #katejackson #nancybarrett #gracehall #johnkarlen #jimstorm #dancurtis #horror #gothic #goth #witches #classicmovies #horrormovies #vintagecollectibles #moviecollectibles #bumperstickers #badges #tabbadges #buttons #1970s #70s #hollywood #barnabascollins #collinwood

We summered in Atlantic City every year until the casinos came in the fall of 1976. We always stayed at Haddon Hall (sadly the first hotel to be converted into the casino Resorts), which had the distinction of being perfectly situated. To the left and a few shops down was the Planter's Peanut Store. To the right in the connecting sister hotel, the Chalfonte, was the Louis Tussaud wax museum. This was the start of my long and passionate love affair with wax museums, with many of my European vacations centered around countries with a wax museum. Not kidding.  These are brochures and guide books from my MANY visits to the Tussaud wax museum on the Atlantic City boardwalk. #waxmuseums #tussaudswaxmuseum #louistussaud #atlanticcity #atlanticcityboardwalk #jerseyshore #newjersey #acnj #museums #haddonhall #vintagecollectibles #vintagesouvenirs #souvenirs #1960s #60s #1970s #70s

“Live those dreams! Scheme those schemes! Hit me with those laser beams!” One of the first Retro Freddy releases was this nod to 80s music and the Frankie Goes to Hollywood crew back in 2014, with the shirt being a prize from the later 2014 SDCC FunDays event.

“Everybody’s asking me- who’s that bunch of personality? I’m presenting you right now- baby, take a bow!” Vintage Shirley Temple collectibles are nothing short of amazing. Created during some of the darkest- and poorest- times of the Great Depression, people still purchased frivolous items like these figural soaps to make their children happy.  Released as a pair and as a single offering and sculpted by Lester Gaba for Kerk Guild Inc., these Shirleys were part of a wide line of movie and comic character soap figures released in the mid and late 1930s. #shirleytemple #kerkguild #soap #vintagetoys #vintagecollectibles #lestergaba #greatdepression #moviecollectibles #movies #standupandcheer #babytakeabow #1930s #30s

Twilight! Candy! Advertising! Love it! New England Confectionery Company, better known as NECCO and as the makers of NECCO Wafers, began making these messaged candies at the turn of the century and the heart became one of their popular items around 1902. Twilight first received the Sweethearts treatment in 2009 to coincide with the first movie’s release on DVD, with New Moon and Eclipse (which I don’t have?!?!) packaging following the year after. #twilight #twilightsaga #stepheniemeyer #books #literature #booksonfilm #robertpattinson #teamedward #necco #candy #sweethearts #neccowafers #confectionary #advertising #valentines #moviecollectibles #collectibles #movies #vampires
